  • I guess, as far as plans go, the Mormon Project is not a bad one. But it seems to be in its very early stages, including mystically speaking. How representative of Humanity are these compiled lineages? There seems to be much research still to be done for it to reach any possibility of success. I guess it was more of a throw-away idea in one book (or in-universe, a wishful idea on Meerlinda's part) than a sure plan to invest all resources and hopes into.

  • What was the plan to get all of Humanity's True Name again? I don't quite remember that plot, only that it existed. I do seem to recall being somewhat... meh. Like, was it compiling everybody's name who has ever been born or something like that?

  • I don't know exactly what to do with Carna and her followers. Pagan magic and witchcraft seems better served by the Telyavs, although I can see how both groups would have different approaches to Humanity and occupy different niches. Even if Carna is shown to be ruthless (the fiction intro for Blood Sorcery in V5, for instance), the Telyavs are Sabbat and supposedly much more sinister, aligned with a dark god or even a demon. While Carna is connected to the Book of the Grave War and can break blood bonds, so that might be what makes her truly unique. Still, I see her and her House as a pretty localized,...

  • @Muad'Dib Thanks for the comments. And yes, I have a Tremere PC in my game, so this thread is helping me brainstorm some ideas that will directly affect this PC and the player.

    Regarding Meerlinda, in my game she's in hiding right now, being the main architect of Vienna's fall to get rid of Etrius and his obsession with Tremere as well as the horror that Tremere had become. What she'll do next I'm still pondering over. I'm thinking about giving her mortality back (and possibly her Avatar too), through the Red Sign. Always wanted to run that Chronicle!

    I should note that...

  • I was thinking how local Tremere factions might rise around strong leaders with power and charisma to establish their own houses.

    Based on the list of possible active members I compiled, and the very helpful contributions on this thread, I was thinking about adding rumors about the existence of the following Houses in my game:

    V5 Official
    House Tremere – Camarilla, led by Schrekt. Traditionalist Tremere magic.
    House Goratrix – Sabbat, led by Goratrix (or Tremere in Goratrix's body). Specializes in unorthodox magic.
    House Carna - officially Camarilla...

    Thank you for this thread! I'm loving it, it's enjoyable and helpful!



    Brilliant commentary and very insightful! Although it is quite an obvious direction, it hadn't occurred to me yet. Thanks again!...

  • All these images come from the first Clanbook. They were all great! Aside from Etrius in some books (mainly in Children of the Inquisition and House of Tremere) and Meerlinda dressed in a maid's veil, in the British Isles DA book, those are the only images of the Councilors that I am aware of. Elaine's certainly is one of the most striking, although Meerlinda's is still my favorite.



    Good point! And that took place in Congo, quite far from the Chantry in Algiers from where she disappeared in the 20th c. Interestingly, Congo is the place the Laibon Lasombra Xi Dundu originally...

  • Very cool! Thanks for this!

    What is the purpose or function of the Machine in your Chronicle? A replacement for God? How exactly?

  • Sergeant Brother Completely agreed!

    Although I should point that London by Night's Victorian Tremere Primogen, Edward Brainbridge, a direct Childe of Elaine, is 7th Generation. He was Embraced in 1850 when she was one of Africa's 7 Pontifices.

    Cairo by Night states she replaced Mooreau, whose Childe Von Aupfholme was 8th Generation and Embraced in the late 18th century some years after the disappearance of the first Councilor Mooreau replaced. Curiously, Mooreau is said to have been reassigned soon after, not dead or missing. It seems the Tremere did not bother to send...

  • Muad'Dib You're welcome for the list! Also, as far as I know, we haven't seen any official word on the fate of the Inner Council in V5. These are the plots I'm using in my game, although beside hypothesizing the fate of the Inner Council I tried to stay true to canon. Sorry if I wasn't clear on that. Regarding Elaine de Calinot, I think the text from the Wiki comes from the first Clanbook Tremere, the first and only time we heard from this Councilor, aside from some information that can be implied in Cairo and London by Night books - as far as I know. That was quite some time ago both in-game...

    Edit: Hey, El Barto, any ideas on who DrMagus speaking with Xbor5 would be?

  • Saga

    Thanks for the reminder regarding Maldavis!

    And although I did read HoT, I don't recall Lucidus. Was he ever Embraced? I'll have to look.

  • [V5] - Active Tremere after Vienna's Fall

    I am compiling a list of publicly known Tremere (at least, to members of the Clan) to give an idea of how they were impacted by Vienna's Fall, which my players are interested in investigating. I adopted this plot from V5, but made it more conspicuous and secretive (no televised attacks, only those who keep up with the SI know something happened). Only upper echelons of the Camarilla and the current Tremere leaders know the Clan has been crippled and broken, but try to keep a facade of normalcy (which is certainly not difficult to see through if one pays attention).

    I'm also assuming...
